An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 714


Chapter 714

“Madam Alma agreed?” Both Florence and Julie were dumbstruck when they heard that. All their grumbles and doubts transformed into pure shock. They hadn’t expected the Nicholsons to agree to the unreasonable request from Dustin. Those were shares worth billions! Could they bear to let it go like that? Wasn’t that too much of a price to pay?

At that moment, even Dahlia looked surprised. She could not comprehend why the Nicholsons were willing to pay such a ridiculous price for just a bottle of medicine.

“Since she’s agreed, then get your grandmother to make a trip here to sign the papers. We’ll make a fair transaction.” Dustin smiled. He wasn’t the least bit surprised by Alma’s choice. He knew very well what people heavily reliant on Zirtanium were like. They would never be able to resist the temptation. After all, the Nicholsons had trillions in assets! Sacrificing one company wouldn’t hurt them too much.

When Julian finally drove off, Dahlia could no longer hold back her curiosity. “Dustin, what was that medicine you had with you? How did you manage to make Madam Alma buy it at such a ridiculous price?”

“That was Zirtanium. It’s a type of chronic poison. But for Madam Alma, this is what she needs to stay alive.” Dustin explained,

“So that’s what it was.” Dahlia nodded in understanding. No wonder the Nicholsons yielded to his absurd request. So it turns out that Dustin held Alma’s lifeline in his hands.

She had initially been worried that the Nicholsons would go back on their word and dismiss her from her position as chairman after reinstating her. But now that Dustin had gotten the shares of the company from them, there was no way they could do that anymore.

“The older a person gets, the more they value their life. To Madam Alma, paying several tens of billions to live another year amounts to nothing.” Dustin smiled.

“This Zirtanium, where did you get it from?” Dahlia wondered

“I intercepted it from Hank Hoffman, of course.” Dustin wasn’t one to hide his actions.

“Hank Hoffman?” Astounded, Dahlia quickly understood what he meant. “So you mean to say that you used what had originally belonged to Madam Alma to threaten her?”

“You could say that.” Dustin nodded.

“Um…” Dahlia and the rest of them were all rendered speechless

It was one thing to be greedy but to threaten someone with what had originally been theirs without even having to give anything up for it was something else. Dustin was basically a con man! Despite being shocked, they had to admit that his ways were indeed effective.

What followed next was a smooth transaction between both parties. When Alma arrived, she signed the papers that approved the transfer of shares to Dahlia without any hesitation.

Once Dustin made sure that there was nothing wrong with the signed papers, he returned the Zirtanium to her.

Dahlia finally heaved a sigh of relief when she saw that the company’s shares were now hers

From that moment on, she would have full control over Nicholson Corp.

As for Florence and Julie, it would be an understatement to say that they were over the moon because they would also benefit from Dahlia’s ownership of the company.

“Grandmother, do we give them the shares?” Back in their car, Julian was very upset when he saw how pleased the group of them looked.

“Hmph! I’ll give it to them now. But we’ll just wait and see if they’re able to handle it!” Alma didn’t look any happier about the situation than Julian did. “Go back to Glenstead and get our men here immediately! I want them to give back everything that they’ve taken from us and more!”

“Yes, Grandmother!” A cruel smile broke out on Julian’s face. As expected from his grandmother. She wasn’t one to let anyone get the better of her! Dahlia and the rest of them were up for a tough

time ahead!

“Dustin, you’ve helped me out once again! Thank you.” It was rare to see such a radiant smile on Dahlia’s face.

“Why are you thanking him? He was the one who brought all this trouble on us! He was only doing what he needed to do to rectify the problem!” Florence huffed.

“Exactly!” Julie nodded. “Dahlia, never praise your men too much. It gets to their heads.”

“Hey, isn’t it time both of you upheld your end of the deal?” Dustin wasn’t pleased by what he

heard.

“Deal? What deal?” They looked at each other quizzically.

“Don’t go back on your word. We promised this. If you lose the bet, you’ll have to bark like a dog,”

Dustin reminded.

“Who agreed to that? Why don’t I remember ever agreeing on something like that? Do you recall this, Aunt Florence?” Julie resorted to playing dumb.

“Of course not!” After a slight pause, Florence promptly shook her head. “Rhys! Don’t go around spreading lies! We never said anything like that!”

“You’re playing dumb, are you?”
